The Don’s Brother Method

After spending only 19 days of a 164 day hike in the woods, I determined that it would be appropriate to share my method of hiking with anyone interested in pursuing a similar type of thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.  After working on the manuscript for over a year, my second book was published in the summer of 2016.  I believe that the title, The Don’s Brother Method:  How I Thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and Rarely Slept in the Woods, speaks for itself.

Since its publication I have continued to hike occasionally, travel a good bit in proximity to the A.T., and speak about my adventure, my brother, and my books.  I have had the privilege to address audiences in my home state of Georgia as well as in Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.  I will add Virginia to that list this spring when I speak at Trail Days on Friday evening, May 19, at 7:30 in the Town Hall of Damascus.

If you have any questions or comments about my books or would like to schedule me for a speaking engagement, please contact me at
